Posted on 25. Mar, 2015 by .

It’s official, CrossFit is a sport. This year, the CrossFit Open has made it clear that they would rather test sport than fitness.  They would rather test skill than heart. If you’ve ever played a sport at a competitive level like high school, college, or professional, you know it takes years to master your craft.  […]

I have to brag about my friend and roommate, Mike, for a second.  Since January of this year, he has lost close to 30 lbs and is the best shape I have seen him in since college.  Not only that, but during this time he has stopped going to the gym, and pretty much kept […]

Earlier today, I went for a walk. It wasn’t a very long walk. I didn’t set any records or break any personal bests. I can’t brag to others about how far I walked or how many calories I “burned”. I didn’t finish out of breath and barely even broke a sweat. All I did was […]

One thing that you will probably notice about this blog is I hardly ever talk about counting calories, limiting portions, or eating in “moderation”.   Personally, I find counting calories to be tedious, time-consuming, and unsustainable in the long-term.
